White Cross Dispensary - October 5, 2006
7 out of 10 people found this review helpful. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, with a more interesting mix of products than most. Lots of 'natural' remedies, organic bath products, &c. It may not have all the run-of-the-mill stuff a Shoppers does, but it invariably has something better.
I recommend this place.

Michaels Arts and Crafts - October 5, 2006
5 out of 10 people found this review helpful. Prices are not what they should be for a semi-sloppy big box store. The selection isn't bad, but hovers around the lower (not bottom) end -- this is not the place for top-quality anything, nor the place for a bargain. Serious, specialised artsy types will want to look elsewhere, and check the Wal-Mart next door, which was selling what I last went there for for less than half the price.
I do not recommend this place.

Wine Rack - October 5, 2006
6 out of 11 people found this review helpful. Friendly service, good hours, low prices, and a dubious selection. A few good wines show up, but it's mostly geared towards "sherry bums" (the clerk's term, not mine) (cheapest sherry: $6), and fans of alcopop. Fine for a cold bottle of plonk to go with whatever you bought at Boushey's, though.
I recommend this place.

Norberry Residences - October 5, 2006
11 out of 16 people found this review helpful. Recommended, with reservations. These are decent cheap apartments for students; spacious, and the property management did not, some years back, lack too much, but it's just too great a housing density for what's essentially a suburb -- do not, for example, ever expect a quiet swim in the pool. (The proximity to Mooney's Bay is a plus, though.) The design is standard-issue highrise: ugly parquet floors in white box rooms. Large windows are the only design feature, but they can be a trial in bad weather.
I do not recommend this place.

Goldstein Food Market - September 22, 2006
5 out of 9 people found this review helpful. Conveniently located, and open reasonably late (11pm most nights), friendly staff, but...

A number of items are quite overpriced, and the produce section is getting pretty awful.

A friend once called it "Eastern Ontario's largest convenience store," and that's pretty spot-on. As a market, it is decidedly not super.

I do not recommend this place.
